RSPCA charity shop re-opens
The RSPCA Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Branch is a charity that promotes animal welfare.
The grand opening of our new look charity shop at the Chesterfield Market Hall took place on a glorious morning in May, heralding a re-launch of the shop for the charity that cares for animals locally. The shop is one of the financial life lines for the RSPCA Centre based on Spital Lane, Chesterfield.
The opening was performed by RSPCA Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Branch President Martin Thacker M.B.E., who cut the ribbon to the premises, in the presence of Branch Chairman Peter Cashford.
Peter Cashford said, "The shop team have worked so hard while the shop has been closed. It is really good to see the shop opening again with such a fresh and inviting look, plus the added bonus of Gift Aid making the most of the generous donations we get."
Martin Thacker added, "The people of Chesterfield have always been kind to the RSPCA and we look forward to their continued generosity making a difference to the lives of animals in need locally."
Abandoned degus looking for homes
The RSPCA Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Branch is desperately looking to find new homes for fifteen degus.
Two adult degus were brought to the animal centre by an RSPCA inspector having been found abandoned in a cardboard box behind some outdoor bins. These two adult female degus were mixing with males when they were found and have since given birth to thirteen babies.
Degus are social animals and we are looking to re-home them in pairs or small groups. Degus are very interesting animals and are fascinating to watch and observe, they will make wonderful pets for an experience owner who understands their requirements and needs. Find out more information about caring for Degus here.
If you feel you can offer any of these degus a new home, please contact the animal centre.

Deano was brought into RSPCA care due to welfare concerns, he was found abandoned at a property. Deano does need a little time to gain trust and get to know you but once he does he is extremely friendly.
Deano loves going on walks and playing fetch with a toy. He is a very active, vibrant boy with a real zest for life. As such he can sometimes get a little overexcited so a home with older children would be perfect for him. Deano absolutely love treats, they do say the way to a dog's heart is through his stomach and Deano is no different!
Deano is looking for an experienced owner who is used to large breed dogs and can help him settled and adapt in a new home. He will also need an owner who can help build up his confidence, altogether with love and patience Deano will make a wonderful companion.
